Anti pipeline emergency meeting ends, no signs on what's the way ahead

BY , Feb 17, 2020 8:25 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Apr 24, 2020 3:32 PM

An emergency meeting of cabinet ministers to discuss anti-pipeline blockades has ended with participants giving no sign of what they are planning to do.

Hereditary chiefs are protesting a planned natural-gas pipeline that crosses Wet'suwet'en territory in northern British Columbia.

Sympathy blockades of rail lines across the country have shut down train traffic in eastern Canada for about two weeks.

After the meeting, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had only a brief comment for waiting reporters.

The Trudeau government has been criticized for not doing more to end the blockades, which have been erected to protest the Coastal GasLink project, part of a 40 billion dollar LNG Canada export project in Kitimat, B.C.
